It seems like the marketing for Death Stranding may be shifting into a higher gear. On Monday March 11, Kojima Productions got a visit by the soon-to-be deputy president of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan.
Exciting time ahead. I can’t wait to see more Death Stranding or better yet playing it!
Hopefully this means we'll get some substantial information soon. But they probably want to focus on Days Gone first.
"Kojima Productions currently trying to explain to the marketing team exactly what the hell it is they are promoting."
how many big wig like him left the company they got famous for and was actually successful?
The most recent example would be Zampella. Just happened last month. I mean, Titanfall had some moderate success, but Apex is incredibly succeful already.
From the top of my head Hideki Kamiya, Shinji Mikami and Ken Levine come to mind but I don't see how this is relevant. The situation with every director will be completely different and there are a lot of unique circumstances that determine the likelyhood of a successful switch to another company. Simply looking at Konami's fall from grace I'd say leaving the company was the best thing that Kojima could've done. The fact that he ended up securing a deal with Sony, a publisher known for giving their 1st and 2nd party devs a lot of creative freedom, is a huge bonus.
Japanese： Hideki Kamiya left Capcom and then collaborated with Nintendo Shinji Mikami left Capcom and then collaborated with Bethesda Western： Vince Zampella and Jason West left EA to create Infinity ward to make Call of Duty Then they left Activision to create Respawn to make Titanfall and Apex
It's only fitting... As far as I know Sony has always loved Kojima and hold him in high regard to the companies success.
A big difference is he pretty much took his whole team with as well as what was said above.
welp my point is people be hype and we barely saw the game yet
We've seen several lengthy trailers. And people are hyped because it's Hideo Kojima (and not only him but a lot more talent from Konami, such as Yoji Shinkawa).
I have no internal hype for the game. I am definitely looking forward to it, but we'll reserve calling something a masterpiece until it's finished.
id care who on board it can still be trash people need to chill out on the whole rock star style creator lol its just kind of funny
PlayStation and Kojima Production Absolute Congratulation from the PS4 Nation.
It's already started, visiting all those studios was the first steps of the marketing.
I think death stranding will be awesome but wouldn't you guys love it if he returned to making stealth games? He could start one last franchise that'll stick it to konami .
It's likely Death Stranding will at least have stealth elements.
Death stranding is a stealth game. Watch the trailers.
I think DS will be a supernatural stealth action game.
Id choose Silent Hill over a stealth game any day
Death stranding having stealth mechanics aside, what do you mean "returned"? The last game he made was a stealth game. It seems reasonable to let him do at least 1 non-stealth game before calling for a "return" I think.
I really respect Hideo Kojima and his work. He is a master at what he does. Truly an amazing talent.
talk, article, chat, promo, still no fucking gameplay of this new amazon delivery simulator just bring back MGS
I'll get flagged, whatever - just shut the fuck up bro, you want MGS go play Pachinko. Kojima is finished with MG - for good.
Damn you Guy are fanboy for life i think its poor man like you than get so angry when someone think diffrent of you and go kill people just cuz you are mad.... thats really usa power trip to bad you never learn... n4g its full of angry boy thats to bad n4g is a great site
Look at your original comment dip shit - who's the angry little boy? I'm Aussie btw
So we haven’t seen gameplay. You complain about not seeing gameplay. Then call it an amazon simulator as if you’ve seen gameplay. Someone’s not too smart are they?
These morons never are mate
Jealous P. O. S
They can always tweak the rules a bit.
Anyone find any clues in the photos?!
On the screens with the voice recording an environment can be seen resembling the Oval Office in the White House.
Hideo's love for PlayStation is undying. Now that's what you call a real fan
